About Alchemy Goods: Like medieval alchemists who sought to turn lead into gold, Alchemy Goods, a Seattle based company, turns “useless” stuff like blown-out inner tubes and old seatbelts into stylish and urban bags, belts and wallets. AG doesn’t just recycle, they upcycle by reclaiming materials that are perceived to be of lesser value and turn it into something of greater value. So far they’ve spared landfills and reclaimed over 400,000 inner tubes (and counting). All their materials are sorted, cut, cleaned and prepped in their Seattle workshop and assembled in a local sewing shop.
